Mike was a longtime meat cutter for Red Owl/Super Value/Target and owner of Mike’s Korner Market in Delano. Mike was a loving husband, brother, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He was full of life and people were drawn to him. A gifted cook who loved to entertain and socialize with friends and family, he is remembered as a kind and fun loving man.
